This show has been commercially released as " Europe '72: The Complete Recordings - All The Music Edition"
Subject: An absolutely classic performance - NOT Overrated!!!
This amazing performance is possibly the finest of Euro '72, though there are several other contenders including 4-14, 5-11, and 5-26. The whole show is great, and has long been a favorite of mine ever since its partial release on Hundred Year Hall. But the second set jam suite is, much like most of the tour, the highlight here.
Truckin kicks off this suite in great fashion, an amazingly high energy jam with plenty of jazzy Other One teases. This is probably the best version of the tour imo. After a brief drums the band launch into an absolutely legendary Other One that is so in the zone it has to be heard to be believed. It's always hard to pick "best" versions of Dead jams, but dare I say that this Other One is not only likely the best of the tour, but possibly the best of all time. The band is just locked in perfectly, Garcia especially weaving some serious magic. There are more than a few hints at a thematic jam (possibly Feelin' Groovy) before things quite down and get spacey after the verse. Phil starts up a great theme that sounds very much like the band's performances of Clementine from 1968. From here, things start to get pretty hairy, building up to a wildly intense Tiger, with Jerry shredding and Bobby throwing out Spanish jam teases underneath the wash of sound. The final 8 minutes many be the best part, however, as Garcia and company wind through a spellbinding jazz jam that flows and builds with jaw-dropping intensity, as the band comes crashing into the second verses. WOW!!!
Things come back to earth with a contemplative Comes a Time, and Bob and Jerry rock out hard on Sugar Magnolia. But this set is still not over, with an epically jammed, bluesy Lovelight and great versions of GDTRFB and OMSN to end this legendary show, which gets my highest possible recommendation.
Subject: Good, But Overrated
I've always felt that 4/26 is the most overrated of the '72 Euro run, while 5/3 is the most underrated. Still, both make for the top eight shows of the run. While all 22 shows of the tour were stellar (with the exception of 4/21, there are eight essential shows. They are as follows (in chronological order of date performed):
Would welcome any discussion to this claim...

Subject: E '72 is a plethora
With so many good shows from the Euro72 tour, it was a little puzzling when, 23 years after the first E72 compilation was officially released, one half of this show was released as Hundred Year Hall. Aside from being neither the best nor most obvious from the tour (London 4/8, 2nd London run, Dusseldorf, Rotterdam, etc.) it missed half of the highlights. Of course most of the London stuff was later relased (Steppin' Out) as was the Dusseldorf show (Rockin' the Rhein) and now the complete tour.
This show does have hot versions of:
Charlie (one of the hottest of the tour)
1st set: B+
2nd Set: C

just love the upbeat version of he's gone , crisp clean great vocals just blown away
i've never heard it called "hundred year hall" before, but that's what it is in english. i missed this show, didn't even know about it, but i'd only been in germany for 4 months. i caught them later at the olympic hall in munich. one reason this recording sounds so great is the superb sound quality of the venue. the inside of jahrhunderthalle is all fine hardwood, floors, ceiling, walls, seating, and stage, and perfectly designed acoustically. i saw zappa there, solo, and it was as truly a religious experience as i could ever have. thanks.

Subject: Accurate set list order
Does anyone know the accurate list order? This detail page cites a different order than what appears on Deadbase .
Subject: i want it
how do i download this?
Subject: Only copy available
The other two copies posted here are no longer available for streaming. This is the only one, presumably because it's the outtakes from the release. However, there are only a couple of shows available like this. Most every other show that has been even in the tinies bit released (like the Grateful Dead movie) has been totally removed from streaming. Not sure why this is up, but I'm not gonna push it. This recording has some hiss in it but it's a great soundboard, well worth downloading and retracking with Hundred Year Hall. Casey Jones is missing from the official release and from this post as well.
Subject: yes this is....
the hundred year hall show, these are the outtakes that did not make it on the officially released album which only contains highlights from the show. theres another version on here of the complete show which i reccomend getting, this version seems to have alot of hiss
Subject: Thats not the right show
Dont rush to download this one. Theres no hurry. This isn't actually the Hundred Year Hall show. Search for other copies or just look at the track listing for the album

They will yank this one for sure, it's been commercially released as "One Hundred Year Hall".
So, GET IT WHILE YOU CAN, GET IT WHILE IT'S FREE, GET IT NOW OR YOU WILL BE VERY, VERY SORRY.
Out-Takes Hundred year Hall
The descrpition and download list says "Casey Jones", but it's actually "El Paso".
You should be viewing this page with RealPlayer if you are using Windows XP. The Internet Archive recommends RealPlayer for streaming and downloading. It's easy and intuitive.
5 stars for the mix
5 stars for the recording
5 stars for the performance
Still sounding like it's 1971, the GRATEFUL DEAD blow away Frankfurt, West Germany...hmm I guess it's just Germany now...eh?
Eat, Drink, Be Merry and Listen to the GRATEFUL DEAD.
Thanks for the Love from Frankfurt, West Germany 1972, my Junior year in HS.
Subject: Love this Good Lovin'
This is a very solid performance. The Good Lovin' might be the best track ever laid down by the Dead. Totally Jerry, it absolutely rocks, and oozes soul.
Glad to see these are finally available. (with better sound than the released songs).
